about 2 cups
coarse salt
500 ml
fresh oysters (in shells)
1 tbsp
olive oil
15 mL
1/2 cup
finely diced shallots
125 mL
1 cup
white wine
250 mL
finely grated zest of 1 lemon
3 tbsp
finely chopped fresh thyme, plus sprigs for garnish
45 mL
1/2 cup
15% table cream
125 mL
1/2 cup
grated Parmesan cheese
125 mL


Step 1

Preheat broiler. Cover bottom of large baking dish with a layer of coarse salt thick enough for oysters to nestle upright.

Step 2

Rinse oysters (in shells) under cold water. Using an oyster knife or other sturdy knife, open oysters; discard top shells. Keeping oysters inside bottom shells, slide knife under oysters to detach them from shells. Place oysters (in bottom shells) on bed of coarse salt.

Step 3

In small saucepan, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Stir in shallots and sauté about 2 min., until softened. Pour in white wine; bring to a boil. Cook until wine is reduced by half; about 15 min. Add lemon zest, thyme and cream. Continue cooking another 5 min., until sauce thickens.

Step 4

Spoon 1 tbsp (15 mL) sauce onto each oyster and sprinkle with Parmesan. Broil oysters about 3 min., or until cheese turns golden. Garnish each oyster with small sprig of thyme. Serve with crusty bread and green salad.
